Just to see my love before I die
(NC) D Bm A D/A A
But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
Nor have I w[D]ings[Bm] so I could fl[A]y
I wish I could meet a handsome b[D]oatman[Gadd9] [D]

A handsome rover from town to town
But I am sick now my days are numbered
Come all you young men and lay me down
Come all you young men and lay me down
D Dsus4 ...
